MIAMI–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Supply shortages, labor shortages, geopolitical disruptions, and demand fluctuations still plague global supply chains, making Supply Chain Planning (SCP) solutions critical to prepare for, and outlast, such disruptions. Nucleus Research has released its 2022 Supply Chain Planning Value Matrix, offering customers an insider’s look at SCP vendors’ usability, implementation methodology and sales and operational planning collaboration tools.

As businesses seek to drive efficiencies and impart greater resilience throughout their supply chain processes, SCP vendors are investing in research and development at unprecedented rates. Competition within the SCP market has grown exponentially as an uncertain supply chain leads organizations to adopt technology designed to help them adapt to market disruptions. Specifically, organizations are seeking supply chain planning solutions to forecast demand at granular levels across weekly to multi-year time horizons; manage supplier collaboration and replenishment planning; optimize inventory and allocation; design channel and distribution plans; and implement Sales and Operational Planning (S&OP) strategies.

Nucleus’s Supply Chain Planning Value Matrix evaluated supply chain planning vendors based on their delivery of value to customers through the functionality and usability of the software. The analysis also offers a breakdown of HCM technology industry leaders, experts, facilitators, and core providers:

  • Leaders: Blue Yonder, Wolters Kluwer CCH Tagetik, E2open, Infor, John Galt Solutions Atlas Planning Platform, One Network;
  • Experts: GAINS, Kinaxis, Manhattan Associates, o9 Solutions;
  • Facilitators: Anaplan, Blue Ridge, Logility, MPO, ToolsGroup;
  • Core Providers: Alloy, Coupa, QAD DynaSys, Smart Software, Valizant.

“The global supply chain disruptions have caused business leaders to realize just how badly agility is needed to meet customer expectations,” said Nucleus’s Research Manager, Isaac Gould. “The right SCP solution will help businesses drive efficiencies and impart greater resilience throughout their supply chain processes.”
